Discovering your brand.

Each project at Flux Appeal begins with a discovery session where we learn about you, your goals and vision for growing your business.

We add to the initial discovery by gathering additional insights from your industry, competitors and demographic.

Our process is highly collaborative, and we strive for client partnerships that are open and communicative to yield the best results.

Building the brand ideas.

We distill the results of discovery into big picture ideas from which to base our initial creative directions.

Our best ideas are put into form and we begin to share our thinking with you. This is where open and honest constructive feedback are crucial to moving forward successfully.

Throughout the process, we design and deliver iterations and various options and paths to choose from and further explore.

The process far exceeded my expectations! I gained a clear understanding of how I want clients to perceive me and the services I offer. This is has given me the added confidence I needed to move forward. Michele was able to capture the vision I had for my brand and bring it to life beautifully.

Jodi Selleck, CFP, EA, Selleck Financial Group
The most rewarding part of this project is being able to see what our company has to offer in a new light. It was challenging to convey our processes and services, however, Michele put in her own research and become more educated in our industry than we would have ever expected her to. Michele always exceeds our expectations, she is excellent at what she does and always delivers!
Katrina Russell Davis, I-Source Technical Services
I have found Flux Appeal to be an absolute wonder in the web-world of promises that are never delivered. They took my barely functioning, unattractive web site and added both outstanding design and superb engineering to make it a web site that has given me nothing but excellent feedback from visitors. There seems to be nothing beyond their inventive grasp.
